In just a few days it will be Amazon Prime Day (July 12th and 13th). I've been an Amazon Prime Member for a number of years and heavily relied on it during the pandemic. There have been plenty of articles and blog posts written about deals and deep discounts to lock into today, even before Prime Day officially starts. I haven't bought anything pre Prime Day and so far haven't eyed anything to buy when it officially takes place. That might be changing.
I was reminded about Prime Day two days ago when I shopped at Whole Foods. After I showed my Prime Membership via my iphone to the cashier and paid, the cashier thanked me for being a Prime Member and gave me a cute green mini zip top tote bag. (Tote bag is in the background of photo.) The goodies in the bag are shown below. Several coupons were also included. The vendors of these products probably pay to have these items included in the bags. Yet, this is a good way to have potential customers try these products as they might not be inclined to buy them right now.
It was a nice surprise to leave Whole Foods with a bag of stuff I didn't pay for! Now it is time to get myself primed for Amazon Prime Day.
